I setup some environment variables needed by applications in

How to give kde / X11 same env.variables as logged user ?

I asked that question a while ago.
It appears e.g. that xterm uses /etc/profile and konsole does not.
How to change that behavior?


I don't use konsole but it appears this thread might help.



Hot tip. I sourced /etc/profile to .bashrc. I was thinking of doing that earlier but the thread confirmed it.
